Lightening Bugs

Just when you think you have seen it all, your child comes in with a family pet sporting lightening bugs on the pets forehead.  What is next???  LOL
May you and yours be blessed!  Dawn

The Pink Door

Do you ever see a path or a door and wonder wear it might lead or what may be inside???  What do you think is inside this pink door?

Jump for Joy Endorsed by Yang

Have I told you that I like the soap mama made me?
I really do like this soap!
I also like the cuddles I get after a good bath!
More Cuddles!
More Cuddles!
I really do like this soap.  It is called "Jump for Joy."  It is named after my sister Joy.  See her picture below.
Joy visiting at Grandma's House.  I hate to admit it, but she is scared of Grandma. 

Lindsborg Midsummer Festival

Festival set up.  See Dylan in the back.

Joy at festival.

Yarn and wool batts at festival.

Yang at festival.

We had a great time at the Lindsborg Midsummer Festival.  We saw so many people and many watched me spin.  Most had not seen a spinner, or at least not for a long time.  I was surprised to learn that at least 3 of the festival goers were spinners also.   Photos of the festival are attached.

Liquid soap continued.
It is getting clearer.

It looks a lot like apple pie filling.

Just a little more water and it is done!

More Weekend Endeavors!

                 Strawberry Love Sugar Scrub

                       Liquid Hand Soap

I am continuing to make items for my on-line store.  Of course, there will be samples and gifts for family, friends, and customers.  Maybe some for me too.  I will also sell some of my weekend endeavors in festivals and in local shops.  I made a sugar scrub.  It turned out wonderfully.  I am making a liquid hand soap now.  It is in the crock pot and it will become translucent soon.  I will then add water, borax, fragrance, and color. 


I have been making craft items like crazy.  I will be at Midsummer's Festival in Lindsborg this coming Sat.  I am attaching a couple pictures of headbands.I think they still look great with short hair.  Who do you think the model is?

Pink Flamingo Mail

When I was a kid, we made fun of anyone that had a pink flamingo in their garden or on their lawn.
As I got older, my tastes changed and I developed an interest in pink flamingos.  I decorate my yard and flower bed with a couple.  I have hanging lights that are pink flamingos.  I decided to go over the top and paint my mailbox pink and add a pink flamingo under the mailbox. The flamingo is peeking out from under the mailbox.  I will plant a climbing plant,  such as a morning glory, at the base of the mailbox and allow the plant to climb up and around the flamingo.

Have a wonderful week!  Blessings!  Dawn
